64-bit support for Chrome now in beta for Windows users


If you’re running Windows on your computer, you’re in luck.

In Google’s most recent beta version of Chrome, the browser added 64-bit support. The support had been previously available in the Canary and developer editions of the browser, but it was a bit buggy.

Now, the capability is pretty solid (of course there will be a few hiccups), but this is the closest we’ve been to a stable 64-bit browser from Google. If you’re interested in getting the beta release, just head to the source link.

CM10 Stable Builds Rolling Out To Select Devices


Those of you who have been looking to get some Jelly Bean lovin’ courtesy of the CyanogenMod team will be all smiles at this news. The CM team has officially announced the final CM10 stable builds are being released for a handful of devices at this time. The lucky devices to make the first cut at the Sprint and Verizon Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy S II LTE and LG Optimus Black smartphones. Unfortunately those devices are the only ones with a stable CM10 build as of now and there is no timeline for when other devices can finally taste the stable goodness just yet. Hopefully the CM team will work its magic and roll out additional builds to the other devices sooner than later.

Cyanogenmod 9 stable build for Google Galaxy Nexus (GSM) released, more devices to follow

The CyanogenMod team has started the process of releasing stable builds of CM9. The first device to be released is the Google Galaxy Nexus (Maguro) which was released earlier today. Indications are that release was a bit premature and a very minor update will be rolling out later this evening. Builds for other devices are also anticipated to start appearing on the download page.

CM9 is based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. The stable builds represent the end of development on CM9 as the CyanogenMod team transitions to work on CM10 based on Jelly Bean. Hit the source link if you are interested in grabbling CM9 for your Galaxy Nexus or to keep an eye open for a release for your device.

Cyanogenmod 6 now at official, stable release

Hey, all you hackers, devs, rooters, and other Android debaucher-izers, good news! CyanogenMod has officially hit 6.0, meaning it is now at the official stable release point. According to the site:

CyanogenMod-6.0 is hitting the mirrors right now! This is our first stable release based on Android 2.2, and we’ve hit our target list of devices. I’m completely amazed at what this project has become and the community that has developed around it, and it’s only just getting started.

CyanogenMod, for those who don’t know, is a rooted ROM for a plethora of devices, including the EVO, Nexus One, Hero, and much, much more. This writer is even running it on his HTC Hero, and is enjoying every second. I have full control over the user interface, performance tweaks, all the way down to a system-wide EQ function.

Want to check it out for yourself? Of course you do! For those of you already running CM6, you can update your copy through the built-in ROM Manager app. Remember, your device MUST be rooted in order to install CM6. Be sure to hit up the source link below to reach the official site, and be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

CyanogenMod V6 RC-1 Available For Evo 4G

The wait for Evo users is finally over. Cyanogen and his team has finished making a stable version of CyanogenMod V6 and has released it for everyone to check out. Just so everyone knows, the “RC” stands for Release Candidate, which just means there will still be some minor tweaks before the release has been completely polished. Cyanogen’s team never stops working on their ROMs until everything is as perfect as possible.

For anyone that doesn’t know, CyanogenMod ROMs have been around since the G1 and have been at the top of every device ROM list since then. They dedicate much of their time and effort to making sure that the android community gets the best experience out each of our phones, all for the occasional beer. Their latest release is based off of Android 2.2 (Froyo), so get ready for 2-3X faster UI, Flash Support, Apps2SD, and all of the other new features.

There are some downsides, which you should definitely note before installing the ROM. Even though the release is stable, there are some things that don’t work right now: 4g, FM Radio, and HDMI. They are being worked on throughout the day, so a fix should be available soon. You will also probably want to check out the threads for the Android Market fix and Facebook fix. Oh yeah, and you will lose Sense UI by installing CyanogenMod. Not only is it not included, it will never be a part of Cyanogen’s ROMs, so if that’s something you love then don’t install this.

Disclaimer: Cyanogen and his team (and myself) is not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,  thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications.

So, without making you wait any longer, here are the instructions:
